<thefluffyshrimp> Welcome to ASKtheARTIST. My name is ~thefluffyshrimp and today I have the great privilege to interview *JonasDeRo, a very talented artist and creator of many well-known works on deviantART.
<thefluffyshrimp> Thank you for presenting us with this opportunity to interview you, JonasDeRo.
<JonasDeRo> Hello all, the pleasure is all mine!
<thefluffyshrimp> ~Fisharto asks "Without sharing too much of your ways to making environments how do you come up with ideas for painting?"
<JonasDeRo> Hello Fisharto, good question!
<JonasDeRo> I would say my main source of inspiration is traveling. I love painting but I love to travel even more; seeing cities, towns, nature really inspires me in the first

As an Earth Pony Doge is a naturally tall and muscular pony, as those who use their hooves for even the slightest task are. In spite of his demanding job as Ponyville's Doctor and Coroner he is not in bad shape; rather his physical condition is the same as any other Earth Pony of his age - strong, muscular, broad and tall. Strength, after all, is what sets the Earthen race apart from the Winged ones, Horned race, or those that have the advantages of both. He manages to stay in such fine shape through regularly galloping through the Everfree Forest - he does not share the same fear of this pl

You and Alfred walked back upstairs into the kitchen. That mirror was weird, was it your imagination that made it ripple….There was no way that was real. No way. You turned around and locked the door.
“Hey do you want play Mario Cart with us?” Alfred asked.
“What? Oh sure.” You told him.
“Are you okay (f/n)?” Alfred said looking concerned.
“Of course,” You told him smiling even though something still felt wrong.
“Awesome, let’s go.” Alfred said and walk out of the room with you following.

You had had a crush on Feliciano for quite some time but he was such a player! Whenever he saw a pretty girl he would go all googly-eyed, you were just waiting for him to start drooling. You always reacted the same, rolling your eyes and walking away annoyed, but he never seemed to notice it bugged you.
“Hey, (Your Name), are you listening?” Feliciano interrupted your thoughts, waving his hand in front of your face.
“Uh. What was that?”
“I said, ‘Do you want to go out on a date with me? We could go get pasta or something.’”
“Sorry, I’m busy.” You answer, rushing into the walk-in in freezer, attempting to prove your point.
“Another time maybe?” He followed you.

Demetri was told promptly by Romano to go and hide his bags somewhere where you wouldnt find them. Demetri quickly obeyed.
Setting his own bags down in the kitchen, he ran a hand through his dark hair.
You stood from where you sat on the couch and wandered into the kitchen, standing beside Romano. "So... How was shopping?"
"Your kids a handful."
"Why is it that hes only my kid when hes being a handful?"
"Because I said so."
You let out a small laugh at his reply, arms slowly wrapping around his torso as you pulled him into a soft embrace, and almost immediatly returned the gesture.
You laughed again.
"Whats so funny?" Romano demanded, stepping away from you.
"Oh nothing. Its just that Mr. Tsundere isnt being tsundere today, is he?"
Romano looked offended. "I am to!"
You rolled your eye

Mind filled with so much rage.
Trying everything to break free.
You're just pretending to be me.
I was here all along.
You're the one that is wrong.
I'm not what you want me to be,
So you drive me to this insanity.
I savor every freedom I get.
More will come just yet.
You know I'm not one to control.
Holding me back has taken a toll.
You're afraid of what I'll do,
But the real monster here is you.

¡Hola! Soy White-nuts y estoy aquí para mostrarles como yo emulo el efecto de colorear con marcadores digitalmente usando el programa Paint Tool SAI. Me he enamorado del estilo de colorear con Copic de manera tradicional, pero como son difícil de conseguir donde yo vivo, tuve que emularlos de manera digital, lo que puede probar ser una tarea intimidante. Mientras que la técnica que voy a enseñarles es bastante simple por si sola, tuve que repensar sobre las maneras usuales para el arte digital e intentar una aproximación tan cercana a la tradicional como fuera posible para obtener el efecto que deseaba, y porque muchos de ustedes la encontraran una manera poco ortodoxa de trabajar digitalmente. Este método fue desarrollado pensandon especialmente en Paint Tool SAI porque es el programa que conozco mejor, y como tal, no puedo garantizar esto funcionará con otros programas, pero tal

I should note that this article will be primarily concerning YA fiction, as that is what I know most about. You may notice that some of these openings use elements that I cautioned against in an earlier article. Told ‘ya there were bountiful exceptions to writing “rules.”
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis
“There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.”
This one is just awesome. I adore some subtle humor in a book, and it’s a great way to start out if you’re witty enough. This short and amusing opening line tells us a lot about the character in a very short time. His name also gives an indication that he is not from the land of Narnia, but is probably from England, if this book is to be similar to the ones prior to it in the series. We know something about his age in t

I troll DA often and I come across alot of people who really crave some good art direction for themselves. Alot of people just don't know what to do or how to discipline themselves to improve their artwork/art journey. I remember when I was new to DA and at the same time new to taking artwork seriously (art school and such) that I was at a total loss at what I was doing. I had no direction, nobody would offer any advice and worse yet I was way too inexperienced to figure out that I had to ask for help. I didn't know about getting help lol. So, I was wondering around aimlessly for years.....yes, YEARS! I know at least one of you can vouch for that, as you followed me along my art journey.
So, with that said, I also don't notice any of these floating around DA. This isn't a guide to getting popular. If you're here to be popular, chances are it wont happen (because thats how karma rolls), or you'll achieve it but it will come with great sadness (drama)

Warning: Story is really strange! I used Ceverbot to create the title, all the dialog, and even pick out which characters to use! For those who don't know what Cleverbot is I left a description below. To those who know what Cleverbot is you can probably now understand why it is weird. I also left a summary of the story's plot in the description box below, just in case you don't understand it from the text. Enjoy.

Character Creation TutorialCharacter creation is one of the most enjoyable aspects of being an artist or writer. This is where creativity can truly thrive as a person's imagination shines at its brightest as they form an image of a character that they find special.

Anyone can create at least one character if they put their mind to it. This tutorial will assist you in setting up your own character(s) that you may enjoy for as long as you wish.
Why make a character?
As previously stated, a character serves high importance in creating a memorable piece of art. Of course, this is not always the case, but that varies depending on the genre that you, the artist or writer, specialize in.

With that look in your eye,
And your own secret throne,
The secrets you hide,
You know that I know.
Don't know your destination,
Disgust of Assassination
I know why you're you, out in the dark,
With that look in your eye,
That electric spark,
That past that you hide,
It's no secret anymore.
Your not at all cliched,
Double blade, a maid,
Made to assassinate
I know your past, why you hide away,
The family and friends you lost,
The price you had to pay,
It's not really your fault,
Your not that alone.
You take a long time deciding,
Your striding, colliding
Your own world your dividing
I know you begged, when you were young,
In streets at morn, dusk and dawn,
To feed yourself, I know that it stung,
Scars in your heart,
Though of course you won't
